I hate the fact that Bard feels the inherent need to be an idiot and shoot someone for the sake of upholding a meta narrative of whimsy. I also hate that I'm more inclined believe his role claim, and that we're about to lose an interesting role like Castform in addition to Cop and Doctor because "lol, im bard and have to shoot the gun!!"

I can get behind shooting Day 1 if there is logic behind it, but this was obviously random, which only in rare luck-based circumstances actually helps the town. I guess I'll stick with [Lynch] Salzorrah, because her vote - as Alex pointed out - seems like a "coast is clear to kill the innocent idiot," and I don't believe in killing an innocent just for the sake of form. Also, it feels like too many people are hopping aboard the Bard train too easily for it to be legitimately mafia? Bad vibes.

Where have all the good babes gone and, where are all the gods?

It's more than likely that Bard is actually Castform, and there's a low chance of him having been culted already.

Do we really want to go into day two with four townies dead? It's not guaranteed that we'll hit a mafia either way, but we're more likely to make some progress if we ignore Bard for the time being.

In a game of 21, with a potential cult (and potentially a vanilla mafia member or two, since Cat Dog got more players than he initially asked for), losing four townies in two days and potentially two to the cult could leave as at 12 v 4 v 1 at best or 8 v 6 v 3 (though more likely 10 v 4 v 3) at worst going into day two.

So I'd like to actually do some scumhunting rather than taking the easy and very manipulable bandwagon on Bard that will honestly get us nowhere.

A burdened heart sinks into the ground
A veil falls away without a sound
Not day nor night, wrong nor right
For truth and peace you fight
Sing with me a song of silence and blood
The rain falls, but can't wash away the mud
Within my ancient heart dwells madness and pride
Can no one hear my cry

Embrace the dark you call a home,
Gaze upon an empty, white throne
A legacy of lies,
A familiar disguise
Sing with me a song of conquest and fate
The black pillar cracks beneath its weight
Night breaks through the day, hard as a stone
Lost in thoughts all alone
In the white light, a hand reaches through
A double-edged blade cuts your heart in two
Waking dreams fade away,
Embrace the brand-new day
Sing with me a song of birthrights and love
The light scatters to the sky above
Dawn breaks through the gloom, white as a bone
Lost in thoughts all alone


In endless dreams, countless realms collide
Hope falls only to rise like the changing tide
But all dreams come to an end,
Just whispers on the wind
Sing with me one last time, for light's sacrifice,
Endless dawn came but not without a price,
Lost in the waves there glimmers, a pale blue stone.
I think of you, all alone

Unsure about how to undo votes this game format wise.

I'm just wary of Bard since he has done this play before as third party (and won at that too) and I think he's capable of doing it again as maf. Now, since he did claim Castform, and no one CC'd him, I guess I can retract that vote now. (psst you guys should retract your votes off me pls unless you want another psyducking inno gone)

I do want to say I'm suss of Hypermorian tho, and jumping on the Gunner wagon. Looking at his post, it looks like he is contributing, but what is your reason for going at me hmm?? He just stated something fairly obvious, then proceeds to vote me without any thought, doesn't add up.

[unvote] Bardothren
[vote] Hypermorian

    Ah.... As much as I wanna beat the tar out of Bard for being, in Cid Highwind's immortal words, a dumb*ss, I can't really refute anyone's logic here. I guess I'll withdraw my vote.

    [Unvote] Bardothren

    You'll still got at least one dope slap coming though Bard.

    Though if what Bard says is correct it looks like my guesses might be right. He can make the weather change, and his ability changes depending on the weather. We might be able to use this though, if we can determine how many votes get cast total and who casts them. Though... I kinda doubt everyone who votes is going to be listed seperately. That's kinda overpowered.

    If CatDog does Vote counts & provides a number of votes each person has, we can narrow down who they are, provided the two affected vote differently right? They'd have one extra/ less vote than the #of people who voted for them.

      In theory yes, though if we either get a lump sum of votes or we're not told at all we won't really be able to tell. If the mafia vote in sync for the same person it'll look completely normal to us without a list.

      And now they know about this they'll probably star voting in unison:/ No offence, but you've played somewhat poorly so far:/

        Sorry. It's what I get for being several months out of practice.

        and also for not being all that good at it to begin with but that's besides the point

        From what Bard describes, Castform's ability will mainly become useful once a mafia member has died. Then you can cancel the vote of the one whose counterpart that would get double vote is already dead.

        It could also be used by forcing a tie vote between two individuals, and then whichever vote doesn't go through could have a mafia member on it. That's not likely to work, though, as the mafia could vote for the same person and it would just even out, forcing a tie anyways (and, since it would be a tie, we wouldn't know which wagon they were on). I guess you could solve this by having every single player vote for one person. Then only the double voter would be revealed, since this lynch doesn't go by majority. BUT that wouldn't work starting tomorrow either, since the mafia could have their votes counting twice already thanks to evolution. But then it could still potentially reveal someone, as they're the only ones that will be evolved by then so their kill would be more likely to go through. Both ways would give the mafia a free kill, but could reveal a mafia to us.

        All in theory. tl;dr Castform won't be useful until we kill a mafia member.

        @mew_nani & Abby - votes won't be shown individually, because the whole thing of evolution is that it effects vote counts, and other things that may also potentially alter votes (such as weather) would instantly reveal every relevant role around at a certain point, so it wouldn't work as a mechanic.

          Oh. Well the above points still apply. kill me please DX

          Honestly I favor Naku's plan. We can only use it once today anyway, so why not use it while we can? Kinda beats a random Day 1 bandwagon that more likely than not will get a townie killed and/or revealed for the mafia to take down later. It's risky, but not that much more so than the usual day 1 stratagem.

          2 things:

          Are we sure CatDog would say if it was a tied vote?


          Are we sure no roles start with multiple votes?

          some roles start with no votes

          presumably Magikarp and Feebas

          so

            No, and no. In theory if the mafia is the only group with a member with double voting power, there shouldn't be a tie since one person will get two votes and get lynched. If there is more than one there will probably be a tie, and I have no idea what will happen and if we'll get told what transpired.

            Current thoughts:

            - I think the gimmick of evolution ties strongly with voting power, so I wouldn't presume anyone starts with more than one vote.
            - I like the idea of Feebas and Magikarp starting out with zero votes in theory, but wouldn't that make the mafia really overpowered?
            - Looking at Eevee, maybe when it evolves, it's also prone to Castform's weather conditions?

            That is all.

            Noting posts #65-67 for later

            blah blah role spec blah blah (sorry, it's just this doesn't really do anything for me in terms of reads, nothing here really makes me lean either way on anyone for the most part)

            Why, exactly? All of nani's posts so far have just been role speculation... anyone can do that regardless of alignment

            nani, what do you think of Doof leaning town on you even though you've only posted role speculation so far?

            Well, this question is kind of useless now...

            Page 5 - ok, interesting things happening!

            Kind of get town vibes from Gunner somehow, not sure why

            Feels slightly weird to see this post pop up when the discussion is starting to focus on Bard and people are starting to make votes, Alternative is a new player though I believe so it could just be a new player unsure about what's happening?

            Was there ever a game where Bard hesitated to yolo use a gun? No.
            Was there anything indicating Doof was the cop so Bard would have a reason to shoot him? Also no.
            Even if he knew, would he declare he would be firing his gun while it's only 50% to reveal him? Once again, no.

            So what's going on here exactly? I'm looking at Gunner and gp the most at the moment. Mostly at Gunner cuz scum gp would try to at least include logic in his judgement so he doesn't make himself too obvious.

            Gunner's post was just a vote. It feels like she was looking for a reason to vote someone and get away with it.

            [Vote] Salzorrah
            I mean yeah, I see what you're saying here about Bard, but what makes Gunner's vote so bad? Why is it worse than Nero's or Nani's?

            You make a good point in #113. I also see the line about Gunner there, but I feel like it only half-answers my question

            I like what Johnny's saying on this page so far too

            stopped at #116 for now, will finish in a little bit

              Event - The Temple of Mew

              Whilst most of the Pokemon on the island were arguing about a dead Ditto and the critter who shot it, a bright light suddenly emerged from one of the caves inland. Seized with adrenaline, the island's inhabitants raced towards it, only to discover the bright light was coming from one of the most legendary Pokemon of all, which spoke out in a chirpy - yet booming - voice:

              "I am Mew. Long ago, this island was filled with Pokemon like yourselves who frolicked and played and had the times of their lives. However, one by one, they all died without laying any eggs, leaving the island deserted for a thousand years. Though I can learn every move in existence, that does not make up for my intense loneliness during this time.

              To celebrate your arrival, I will give a special item to the Pokemon who can tell me the best story involving other Pokemon. Please tell me a short story involving one Pokemon for each letter of the English alphabet (English Pokemon names only, please - I may be old, but languages were never my forte). Points will be awarded for plot, the likelihood of the Pokemon in your story interacting with each other, and adherence to standard spelling/grammar rules. The Pokemon who regales the best story by the close of day will receive the item.

              I look forward to hearing your stories of Pokemon old and new, for I am Mew, and I am a poet, wouldn't you know it?"

              Gentle reminder that the vote tally above does not reflect how many votes each player has.

              Day will end in 24 hours time, at 10:00pm BST on Saturday 22 April. Please ensure that you get your lynch votes, and stories for Mew, in before the deadline.

              Rules and Mechanics
              1. Please be civil to one another. This is only a game; we're not opening the Ark of the Covenant.
              2. Each day phase will last approximately 48 hours, and each night phase will last approximately 24 hours.
              3. Unless stated, you can't target yourself with your Night Action.
              4. Lynch votes must be written in the format of [#LYNCH] Username. If you want to change your vote, you must use the format [#UNVOTE] Username. Not following this format will result in your vote not being counted.
              5. Votes for a no lynch/abstaining are NOT allowed.
              6. A tied lynch vote will result in a coin toss to determine who gets lynched.
              7. Missing two consecutive lynch votes will result in your removal from the game.
              8. Do not share PMs for any reason. If you do, you will be removed from the game immediately.
              9. All important game conversation should be kept in the game thread, or in any relevant Discord chat.
              10. If you are dead, please stay dead. Don't post or 'like' any new posts. You do get to post a single "death post" that may not contain any game-related information.
              11. Posting in the night phase is not allowed, unless stated otherwise.
              12. Any questions? I'm all ears. PM or message me on Discord (Mr Cat Dog#8817), please.
              13. Have fun! Yes, this is a rule.

              Further to the above, in addition to amending certain players' actions, evolution will also impact lynch votes. Certain Pokemon will start off the game with their votes not counting towards the final total; evolved Pokemon have the potential for their votes to count more than once. There will be other, hidden, ways of votes being manipulated also throughout the game.

              Also how long is left in the day bc ofc this event pops up the moment I go to where I won't have access to my laptop for 24 hours

              A veil falls away without a sound
              Not day nor night, wrong nor right
              For truth and peace you fight
              Sing with me a song of silence and blood
              The rain falls, but can't wash away the mud
              Within my ancient heart dwells madness and pride
              Can no one hear my cry

              Embrace the dark you call a home,
              Gaze upon an empty, white throne
              A legacy of lies,
              A familiar disguise
              Sing with me a song of conquest and fate
              The black pillar cracks beneath its weight
              Night breaks through the day, hard as a stone
              Lost in thoughts all alone
              In the white light, a hand reaches through
              A double-edged blade cuts your heart in two
              Waking dreams fade away,
              Embrace the brand-new day
              Sing with me a song of birthrights and love
              The light scatters to the sky above
              Dawn breaks through the gloom, white as a bone
              Lost in thoughts all alone


              In endless dreams, countless realms collide
              Hope falls only to rise like the changing tide
              But all dreams come to an end,
              Just whispers on the wind
              Sing with me one last time, for light's sacrifice,
              Endless dawn came but not without a price,
              Lost in the waves there glimmers, a pale blue stone.
              I think of you, all alone

              My kind of challenge. *cracks knuckles*


              The Execution
              There was once a village, happy and prosperous, where Granbull strolled content, sniffing the trees and watering the fire hydrants, where Crobat showed their Golbat and Zubat children how to find the fattest and juiciest Snorlax to drain of all its blood. Flocks of Chatot sang One Direction music on constant repeat from every tree adorning the street corners. Lampent lit the streets, Chandelures the homes, and Volbeat and Illumise the fields, giving the nighttime visage of the town an eerie yet cheerful appearance of Halloween Night, in whose light danced the Duskull, Haunter, and Banette.

              But one day, a mischievous Castform ruined everything. Having received a gun from a confused, drunk Delibird, he delighted himself by shooting the first pokemon he saw. The poor Ditto, who lay on the street bleeding pink goo, was well beloved by the young and old alike for its revelry in mimicking any pokemon, from becoming a Quilladin volleyball for the beach parties to making the children's' eyes go wide with displays of elegance in the form of Xerneas, Yveltal, and Zygarde.

              An Aggron and Tyranitar knocked the smoking gun from the Castform's grasp, cuffed him, and brought him to trial. And old, wizened Electivire, with long white whiskers and a gnarled oak staff charred by lightning, presided over the trial, while the whole town stood jury. Many a Mean Look and Nasty Plot bent their malice towards the Castform, who trembled and felt terror at the sight of the mob. One Oshawott threw its shell at the Castform, leaving a long gash across its fleshy white face.

              "I - I didn't mean it, honest!" the Castform shouted. "I just wanted to kill the bad guys, all those Raichus, Bulbasaurs, and Squirtles that bully us!"

              "Silence!" roared the Electivire. "Now, who shall represent the prosecution?"

              A hulking Feraligatr, cramped into a luxurious suit with its stitching stretched to the breaking point, waddled forward, stepping slowly to minimize the strain on his creaking pants.

              "I do, your honor," the crocodilian reptile said mildly. "The accused, Bard the Castform, stands here as the prime and only suspect of the shooting of our beloved Golgari, who we all fondly remember for his antics as a drunken Bidoof, or perhaps standing in for a mail carrier when our resident Unfezant fell ill. And now, he is gone, stricken down by the bullet fired by the gun belonging to Bard.

              The crowd murmured angrily once the Feraligatr stepped back, and the stares upon the Castform redoubled themselves in intensity. Perspiration fell like rain from Bard's brow.

              "And the defense?" asked the Electivire?

              A Wobbuffet waddled forward, wearing pink lipstick smeared across its face and four polished black Hugo Boss shoes. The Castform stared plaintively at this one bastion of his defense as it approached the Electivire.

              The Wobbuffet cleared her throat and spoke. "I stand for the defense, and I find no way of defending him, save that he may be rendered insane by some defect of his brain, or the control of some ill-meaning Malamar. However, seeing that no Malamar are present, and this Castform clearly doesn't have a brain to begin with, I find no reason to doubt his guilt."

              "Then," Electivire said, slamming his staff on a stone and making a hollow thunk that rang through the town, "I see no reason to proceed with this folly. By Keldeo, Herald of Justice all across the land, I pronounce Bard the Castform guilty of second degree murder."

              The Feraligatr rose its clawed hand into the air so fast it tore the sleeve off of its suit. "Wait a moment, judge, I object!"

              The Electivire gave him a bemused look. "What reason does the prosecution have to object to a guilty verdict?"

              "I object to the sentence. Surely, this was a planned murder, meriting the first degree."

              The Electivire looked troubled. "Surely not! He had scarcely gotten the thing before he shot it. Why, if the defense were more energetic, he might get away with a charge of manslaughter."

              The crowd, following the Feraligatr's intent, started to chant, "First! First! First! First!"

              The Electivire, overwhelmed by voices calling for blood, sighed, and changed the verdict.

              "In the name of Keldeo, I judge Bard the Castform guilty of first degree murder, the penalty of which is death."

              The crowd roared in approval. No sooner than the words passed from the Electivire's lips did a chopping block appear, as if by magic, from the crowd. A Jigglypuff sang his final requiem, lulling him into the sleep before death, and then the headsman, a Nidoking decorated with rugged brown scars across its arms, lumbered forward, hefted an enormous notched axe over his head, and brought it down onto Bard's head, splitting him into two and spilling white mist on the ground.

              And everyone else lived happily ever after.




              EDIT: also, [Lynch] Salzorrah because I would like to live to reap the rewards of this contest, should I win it.

                A burdened heart sinks into the ground
                A veil falls away without a sound
                Not day nor night, wrong nor right
                For truth and peace you fight
                Sing with me a song of silence and blood
                The rain falls, but can't wash away the mud
                Within my ancient heart dwells madness and pride
                Can no one hear my cry

                Embrace the dark you call a home,
                Gaze upon an empty, white throne
                A legacy of lies,
                A familiar disguise
                Sing with me a song of conquest and fate
                The black pillar cracks beneath its weight
                Night breaks through the day, hard as a stone
                Lost in thoughts all alone
                In the white light, a hand reaches through
                A double-edged blade cuts your heart in two
                Waking dreams fade away,
                Embrace the brand-new day
                Sing with me a song of birthrights and love
                The light scatters to the sky above
                Dawn breaks through the gloom, white as a bone
                Lost in thoughts all alone


                In endless dreams, countless realms collide
                Hope falls only to rise like the changing tide
                But all dreams come to an end,
                Just whispers on the wind
                Sing with me one last time, for light's sacrifice,
                Endless dawn came but not without a price,
                Lost in the waves there glimmers, a pale blue stone.
                I think of you, all alone
